The Mayor welcomes invitations to attend events held by organisations in the City. However, due to demand, it may not be possible to attend every event to which the Mayor is invited. If the Mayor is unable to attend a function the current Deputy Mayor may attend where possible and should be accorded the same protocol as for the Mayor.

The Mayor can attend:

  • awareness raising promotions
  • fundraising events
  • Annual General Meetings
  • festivals
  • award presentations
  • religious services
  • opening presentations for new or refurbished facilities
  • launch events for new services or businesses

The Mayor cannot attend political events.
